Friday Fictioneers – Desk

15 August, 2014

What’s that? It’s Friday already? Really? Well I’d best post my Frific for this week then. Rochelle, Queen of Microfiction, send us this prompt pic:


I rooted around between the sofa cushions of my mind and found 100 words lying around. This is the order I put them in:


With the redundancy cheque I could have paid for a cruise, or bought brand new cars. Or paid off the bulk of our mortgage, as my wife would have preferred.
But instead I bought this desk and chair. Where he sat, eight hours every day for sixteen years, creating his most famous works. He once said that the spirits of his characters inhabited the desk, that he only felt them conjoin with him when he took his seat.

I sit in that same chair. I breathe the smell of the wood, relax into the leather, ready to receive the spirits.



  1. Cool introduction, rooting around the sofa cushions!

  2. Very expensive desk and chair!

  3. What a wonderful purchase!

  4. I hope, for his sake, that some of the magic rubs off on him. Because if not… 😦 I loved the ‘sofa cushions of my mind’ … some mornings that’s just the way I feel.

  5. Dear RG,

    Would that a desk could inspire by the spirits within.



  6. Oh, if it were only that easy!!! Alicia

  7. This does seem to be a very powerful desk.

  8. RG, For the sake of his domestic situation, I hope those spirits show up sooner rather than later. I also enjoyed your introduction. Humorous and well written once again. πŸ™‚ —Susan

  9. Your story is wonderful R.G.! I think he will soon be swathed in emotions. Good story! Nan πŸ™‚
